Mother's Day Cards

Hope you are having a great week. Here are some Mother's Day Cards for the current Hero Arts Blog challenge. I really like the new sewing-related stamps from Hero Arts and Lawn Fawn, especially since I have been doing some sewing lately.

I used scraps of fabric from a project I am working on to make a quilted background for the first card.

There are vintage snaps on the second card. The pattern piece (stamped on a vintage pattern) and a scrap of fabric (same as above) were cut out and held together with a needle.

          I placed fabric (same as above) in the window card below and attached the pattern with a tiny pin with a couple of beads on the end. The Lawn Fawn sentiment worked perfectly with the Hero Arts stamps!

Stamp(s): Hero Arts (CL429 Simply Handmade, CL397 Sew Original, CG190 Variety And Quality; CL401 Speckled Ornaments, CG119 Flourish Background); Lawn Fawn (Sew Lovely)
Ink(s): Memories (White); ColorBox (Chestnut Roan); Tsukineko (Rich Cocoa)
Paper(s): Hero Arts (Carnation Folded Card); The Paper Cut (Folded Cards); The Paper Company (Kraft), McCall's (Vintage Pattern Scrap)
Other: Hero Arts (Pearls); JoAnn's (Fabric); Imaginisce.com (Button Brads); Bobbin Ribbon (Ribbon); Singer (Vintage Snaps, Needle)

Thanks for looking! Comments are appreciated!
